NEW WATCH

(Click on pic for full size)
New watch in the house. Hamilton Khaki Scuba. Haven't done watch reviews for a long time, so here goes a little first impression review.

Specs:
Model number H64551857
Screw down crown
100m water resistant
Sapphire crystal
Hour, minute, second, day and date function
Swiss Quartz movement - ETA/ESA 255.122-D12D6 (ESA 255.121 is possible but unlikely)

Well this is the same basic quartz circuit board they used in the high end Omega De Ville Prestige, (both Omega and Hamilton being sister companies under the giant SWATCH umbrella). Granted that Omega rhodium coats and modifies the movement further, and thus so they charges 5 to 6 times more. Lume is probably Luminova, it doesn't seem bright enough to be Super Luminova. I like the dial design, hours, military hours, minutes and seconds. The diver styled bezel does not rotate. No problem, ain't using it for diving, not that I know how to dive in the first place!

I think it looks really cool and sporty with the splash of orange over silver. The orange markers and second hand's tip comes together nicely. The leather strap is a little bit too orange for leather to be, but the silver dial is really classy. Most of my watches are black dials, so the silver is a nice change of mood. I image with its silver dial it will also double as a pseudo dress watch if its put on a bracelet or a more sombre colored leather strap. But I like it sporty so I guess I might get a bright orange Zulu strap for it.

Dimensions:
Stainless steel case
Case thickness 13mm
Case size 40mm excluding crown, 43mm including crown.
Lug size 20mm
Lug to lug 50mm
Dial size 31mm

Some quick and dirty pics of the unboxing:
Thanx for the read.

Obviously, it had been the actual 1980s which loved the actual rolex replica each resplendent within 18kt gold as well as studded along with expensive diamonds. Presently there seems to be hardly any rolex replica sale distinction between your 1988 ref. 16520 and also the 2000 ref. 116520, conserve with regard to call rolex replica sale as well as repositioning from the operating mere seconds hands. Little variations over the ref. 16520 as well as 116520 knobs are available upon nearer examination, along with 5 variations recognized for that hublot replica as well as 5 recognized to date for that ref. 116520. These types of variants contain font rolex replica sale hands width modifications, as well as lustrous fresh paint color modifications. Hindsight is an excellent point. In the actual replica watches sale battled to maneuver just a couple 100 Rolex Daytonas via it's shops each year, along with just close to 5% becoming exotic-dialled good examples. These days, individuals exotics tend to be really worth probably the most, powerful costs method to the thousands and thousands.
